Roger Verne McClean Jr.

September 17, 1964 ~ March 28, 2020



Devoted husband, father, and pappy Roger Verne McClean Jr., 55, of Butler, PA woke up in the arms of Jesus, his Savior on March 28, 2020 after a brave long battle with his health.

Born September 17, 1964 in Butler, PA, Roger was the son of Roger V. McClean Sr. (and his wife Marilyn), and Sharon Leah Skellenger.

Roger married his beautiful wife Wendy on May 18, 2013. He so loved and was proud of his daughters; Brittany McClean, and grandson Parker of Butler, PA; and Stephanie Nickerson (and husband Nate) of Keyser, WV.

Roger is also survived by his siblings Scott (Stephany) McClean of Brownsummit, NC; Leah (Bill) McClintock of Butler, PA; Steve (Dorrine) Ralston of New York, NY; Brother-In-Law Fred (Jackie) Pryor of Slippery Rock, PA, and Sister-In-Law Robin Pryor-Walters of West Liberty, PA. He had many nieces and nephews; Jacob, Scotty, Jordan, Meredith, Taylor (Michael), Rachel, Hayley, Whitney & Victoria, Ty (April), Brittany; Andrew, and Adam.

Roger was preceded in death by his father, Roger V. McClean, Sr.; his grandparents, William and Bernice McClean; and nephew, Austin.

Roger was a 1983 graduate of Butler High School, and retired from the Armstrong Cable Company after 20 years of faithful labor. He was a hard worker, and loved by all that he met in his line of work. Roger loved the outdoors and enjoyed fishing and golfing. He was a proud Pittsburgh sports fan. His passions were his friends and family, spending time with them camping and enjoying long weekends at the river and the beach. He was most joyful with sand between his toes and the sun on his face.

It's hard to go very far in Butler County without finding someone who knows Roger. He made an impact and left an impression on everyone that met him. Countless stories have been shared of his kindness and generosity. He was a loving husband, a dedicated father, and a loyal friend.

Roger's family would like to extend special thanks to the staff of American Renal Association in Butler, his dialysis nurses; Shawn, Tim, and George and various other nurses (especially Robin) for their exceptional care over the past few years.

As per Roger's wishes, there will be no visitation or services and his family encourages you to share your memories of Roger with the hashtag - #StrongLikeRoger.
